Welcome to the year 11 CEIAG page where you can find help and support within our community during these tricky times. I am extremely passionate about supporting and helping our students make informed realistic choices about their future plans. I understand that  these are unprecedented times and want you to know that I am  here to help in terms of helping you to prepare for your next steps, this is a great opportunity for 'big picture learning', for you to develop a real love of your chosen subjects and to learn about the application of learning to the real world. It would be wise to broaden your understanding of subjects beyond exam requirements and to develop your cultural capital, for example, accessing:

  • Links to articles/reports/websites of both general and subject specific interest
  • Films on your subject interest, for example The Imitation Game if your interested in Computing or Maths
  • TV series, such as Chernobyl if you are planning on studying Physics
  • CV support and help 

For those who have applied or accepted a place at an alternative establishment, we would advise that you follow them on social media for updates or follow me on Twitter.

Year 11, you are amazing and together we have got this!!

03/07/2020 - OLCC Sixth Form Taster Day Tuesday 7 July

Hello to Yr 11 students  who have applied to OLCC Sixth Form

We are looking forward to welcoming you into our Sixth Form in September. At this time of year, we would normally be holding a Taster Day when you would have been able to experience actual sixth form lessons and learn more about day to day life in our sixth form. As this cannot take place this year we have done our best to provide a similar experience for you online. 

On Tuesday 7 July please go to Our Lady's Catholic College Web-site and find the Virtual Taster Day page. There will be a  video welcome message from Mrs Seddon and a Video Power-point which I have recorded. This will give you information about the finalised option blocks and other details about our Sixth Form. You will also be able to watch a DVD which shows 'Life in Sixth Form'. 

Each teacher has made a presentation about their subject which includes course details but also information on how the course is taught, extracurricular activities and information about careers which are related to their subject. 

In the next week or so, we will be posting a Sixth Form Handbook to you and an appointment date/time for the individual Induction Interview which you will attend at the end of August. This is to discuss your program of study and ensure that you feel confident to start your new life in Sixth Form in September.

As always, if you have any questions, please email me. However, i am in school every Monday and Friday morning and will be able to speak with you over the phone from 9.15 - 11.00 if you would prefer to speak to me directly.

kind regards,

Mrs Lowe

Head of Sixth Form
Our  Lady's Catholic College

My Week of Work

This week we would like you to take part in a world of work insight week to begin to get you thinking about your future aspirations and post 16 choices. Every day you may take  part in the range of 20 lessons available to you. The lessons will support you to gain insight into the world of work through employer videos and resources. Each session is a PowerPoint that you access. It has information, videos and task and is  narrated all the way through. There is a virtual mentor who will pop up at various points to  keep checking with you. There are mini tasks where you will be asked to pause the session  to check your understanding and complete something exciting and there are key tasks for you to complete each day. Check Classcharts each day for daily information.

Feel free to email me if you have any questions about this week joanne.cottam@lancasterhigh.lancs.sch.uk
